    There is something so lonely, yet so serene and peaceful about this nude sculpture. Such a powerful aura of wistful, nostalgia and the awareness of the utter solitude of death. The woman’s posture on the tombstone evokes such sad, perplexing thoughts I find difficult to put into words. Surely the loss of a precious love. I’ve never seen anything like this before. Utterly brilliant.

What do you think?
